Greater Yellowstone is defined by blue-ribbon trout streams, grizzly bears and the longest wildlife migration corridor in the continental United States. But these treasures are now threatened by expanding energy development pressures and growing populations.
At Wilderness, we're working to protect this iconic American wildland from these threats and preserve the landscape's natural and human benefits.
Greater Yellowstone is one of the most recognized wildlands in America, but it is best discovered through the eyes of local residents whose lives are rooted in the land.
At Wilderness, our work within Greater Yellowstone is rooted in several focal wildlands that need protection.
You can help protect Greater Yellowstone so that it remains as iconic and wild as it is today.

This report describes how the U.S. government agency that oversees 700 million subsurface acres of oil and gas resources on nearly 250 million acres of public lands is saddled with outdated and unbalanced policies, often contradicting its own mandate to manage the land for multiple uses.
90 percent of the public lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management is open to oil and gas leasing, even in areas with little or no potential for developing these resources, compromising potential for protecting wildlife and recreation, while encouraging speculative leasing.
